Creative has been around for a long time, and it shows.

Working at twice the sampling rate of a CD player, this 96KHz PCI board puts out clean 24 bit sound. How clean? The signal to noise ratio is >108dB. I don't have my calculator handy, but that's a lot more than a million to one ratio. Clean. Sure, it's got a Line In jack and a microphone jack, but the 7.1 channels output let you surround yourself with the sound, while X-Fi technology helps make it some of the crispest clearest sound you've ever surrounded yourself with. Or put on a pair of headphones and get projected into the sound.

Gamer or audiophile, you really ought to look into this. Go ahead. We'll wait right here while you decide for yourself.
